      Problem:
      ORA-29701: unable to connect to Cluster Synchronization Service

      [oracle@linuxserver ~]$ sqlplus -v

      SQL*Plus: Release 11.2.0.1.0 Production

      Connected to an idle instance.

      SQL> startup nomount
      ORA-01078: failure in processing system parameters
      ORA-29701: unable to connect to Cluster Synchronization Service
      SQL> Disconnected

      I guess ocssd not required in 11GR2.

      Looking for some support.
